State gas tax to jump 12¢ a gallon next week

State gas tax to jump 12¢ a gallon next week”

The tax adds 12 cents to the price of gas per gallon. Another variable excise tax will be set at 17 cents. For a gallon of diesel, a 16-cent increase will go into effect, ABC7 reported.

The bill also includes a "Vehicle License Fee Law" with a varying fee between $25 and $175 based on vehicle value to be added to registration fees, which will take effect January 1, 2018.

Additionally, a $100 annual fee on electric vehicles will be imposed on owners in lieu of gas taxes beginning on July 1, 2020. But the increase is due to a new gas tax that has gone into effect.

Five other states charge a sales tax on gasoline: Alaska, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana and IL.

The tax hike is due to start November 1 across the state. Her district office phone in Davis is (530) 757-1034. Jerry Brown signed the legislation in April.

The state will have an estimated $52 billion more money purportedly for transportation needs for the next decade.

The plan sparked a significant backlash, with petitions now circulating to repeal the tax hikes.

Brown proposed the bill back in March, calling it a "road fix and transportation investment package".

The gasoline tax was proposed last March, its aim being statewide road maintenance and repairs.

Gas prices are going up this week, during a time of year Southern Californians usually see them drop, and it's all because of a new state tax.
